Start by whisking together lemon zest, fresh lemon juice (fresh is always best), sugar, mustard and sea salt. When the sugar and salt dissolve, start to slowly whisk in the olive oil until it is emulsified. Done!

Use this refreshing lemon vinaigrette on saladsvegetables and pasta salads, or as a marinade for shrimp, fish or chicken. This lemon dressing can easily be doubled or tripled.
